Since ancient times the best incense in the world has come from southern Oman, bordering Yemen. Here was the starting point for the famous Incense Road. This very fine and traditional balsamic-scented frankincense from the Dhofar Mountains exudes intensive aromas due to its high content of essential oils.
This high quality incense "Al-Hojari" is produced under the best growing conditions for incense in the world. This high-quality incense is white-green-gray or pure white pieces, and is often completely bought out by Arab traders, so this is quite rare in the West incense available in the highest quality. We are lucky to be able to import directly from Omani friends in Oman!
For ages frankIncense has been used for consecration, blessing, cleansing and protection. The fragrance is sweet and heavy, and creates an atmosphere of clarity, purity and tranquility. It is stimulating yet relaxing. In Oman the smoke is used to perfume clothes, while it also disinfects. It is chewed to freshen breath and prevent colds, and is good for the digestion. The smoke also dissipates negative energy between people in a room
The incense is packed in a resealable plastic bag.
